It all started with a few dozen residents in Florida complaining about smelling rotten eggs and sulfur. Now it’s given rise to class-action lawsuits against both wallboard manufacturers and homebuilders. Several health departments in the South are investigating the drywall problem as is the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) These investigations so far have concluded nothing other than tracing the problem to Chinese Drywall starting in 2004. Some could be dating back to 2001.
The chemicals that possibly cause the problem and how they entered the the building material lifecycle are still something of a mystery.
Drywall—gypsum, plasterboard,wallboard—is basically a gypsum-based plaster layer sandwiched between two sheets of paper. The majority by far of US gypsum comes from mines and quarries.
